Being a patient you learn the truth about some things and one of those things is that you really are supposed to put yourself first here on Earth. It is not being of the world, it is being in the world using the prophetic knowledge of our savior Jesus Christ, the smartest man who ever walked the face of the Earth. Being in the world is ok because Earth is our temporary home. Being of the world is putting tangible things before God.
There is no way we can serve with the greatest magnitude unless we love and take care of our selves first. If one doesn’t take care of oneself, one is not able to listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to serve for God. Like when people are mean or nasty to everyone. The Holy Spirit/God cannot be present, there isn’t goodness. So, the only way one is able to serve is to love thyself. That causes us to be able to hear God. Im not saying God doesnt use everyone for his work. I am saying that if you arent in a good mind, you wont listen to God, you’ll choose the wrong instead of choosing the right, and it is because you are not being love. Therefor, you are causing yourself to be alone without the ability of discernment and not in the presence of God. It is your choice. One cannot love completely with out having the presence of love in your heart. The same as the presence of God. You have to allow love in first in order to love your neighbr
You love others as you love yourself. Matthew 22:39-Love your neighbor as yourself. You have to love yourself to love your neighbor properly. That scripture has multiple meanings. It also means you are going to treat your neighbor the same way you treat yourself. How good do you feel after a warm, relaxing bath? That same good feeling is how you will treat your neighbor; in a relaxed and refreshed manner.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. This tells how to love our neighbor and also gives us a clue on how to hear God when we are needed to serve for God. Jesus said love just as I love you because he is giving us a short parable. Love so I can talk to you and you can hear me.
It really bothers me when I make a decision that is good for me, then it makes someone else mad. Trust me, I’ve been accused of being selfish. Others may say, “go ahead, I know it is all about you, I know.” Then stomp away. I am not going to let it bother me any more. Just because I am an individual with different needs does not mean I don’t care. It does not mean that I will step on people to get what I want. It means that I am trying to improve myself and it has nothing to do with any one else but me. There is not one person in this world that is exactly like me. I will always work at loving myself so I can love others. Isn’t that the first step to wellness?
When you leave yourself behind, you get sick.
DO NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU FEEL LESS THAN YOU ARE OR WANT TO BE. IT WILL MAKE YOU SICK. REMOVE THEM UNTIL THEY CAN ACCEPT YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE. BE PATIENT AND PRAY FOR THEM. WAIT FOR THEM TO COME TO YOU. WHEN YOUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED AND IT IS PROVEN THEY CAN LOVE YOU AS THEIR NEIGHBOR, LET THEM IN. YOU CAN DO AND BE ANYTHING YOU WANT. ALWAYS TRY TO BE THE VERY BEST AND BE LOVED CENTERED.
Just as Jesus Christ said to do, follow Matthew 22:39 and John 15:12.
If you havent understood anything i wrote remember this:
THERE IS A WHOLE FAMILY OF PEOPLE WHO WILL JUDGE YOU IN THIS WORLD. THEY ARE NOT LISTENING TO GOD. THAT MAKES THOSE SAME PEOPLE BITTER. THOSE PEOPLE WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE RIGHT NO MATTER HOW MUCH GOOD YOU GIVE YOURSELF OR SPREAD IN THE WORLD. DO NOT WAIT FOR ANY ONES APPROVAL. THE ONLY APPROVAL YOU NEED COMES FROM GOD. JUST KNOW YOU ARE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN AND DO NOT FALTER FROM YOUR PLANS TO BE A SUCCESSFUL, LOVING SERVANT OF GOD.
I hope this made sense. Lately I have noticed that I am scatter brained and it is flowing over into writing.
